    Judging by the shape, I'd say it's a Hepco & Becker rack.

    here's the RT windscreen and looks identical to the XCo OEM. the brackets are different.

    I bought this very clean, low (13k) miles 2018 XCountry eariler this year. I know it's only a lil 650 single and it's only got 52 bhp but still, I'm a bit disappointed with the performance. It's likely that in my hands, it's only ever going to be ridden on sealed roads as we have next to nowhere here in Scotland that you can legally ride off-road.

    So, in my desire to give it some more horsepower, I've sourced one of the spare unused engines from Charley Boorman's 2009 Dakar Rally attempt. It was built by Touratech and was reputed to have dyno'd at 72 bhp. It's provenance was verified by BMW Motorrad UK and the appropriate race ECU was also sourced from them.

    In advance of attempting the engine swap, I'm wondering if anyone else has fitted and F650 engine into a G650? The obvious issue I can see is that the boss on the rear of cylinder head to which the shock absorber mounting frame attaches is different. There may also be issues in getting the ABS to work with the race ECU, although again, an ABS ring to fool the ECU into thinking that a 21" front wheel is fitted was sourced from BMW UK. This. however, is in an F650GS wheel fitment rather than G650.

    I'm still in two minds about performing the conversion and considering if I should perhaps buy an F650 into which I can fit the engine more easily. I've even had impure thoughts about an F650CS Scarver....

    @Schtum , What made you choose the Xcountry?

    I know it's the wrong place to make suggestions like this, but to me it sounds like you could save yourself a lot of headache by just selling the X and buying a 701SM that has 74hp in stock form?

    I see you have fitted a high front fender on the XCountry. Which one is it?

    The ABS doesn't talk to the ECU as far as I'm aware.

    You'll possibly need a different head. So any pro's from the works one will be lost.

    Hi guys,
    Hope you are doing fine!
    I'm looking for a Unifilter air filter for the XCO. Seems to be hard to find this one nowdays. Any website that you are aware of that you could share? thanks

    Just re-tap the threads. Replacing the sprocket shaft requires rebuilding the engine and transmission.
